Compliments & Competitions


Over the years Annmarie has gained experience in radio broadcasting and course facilitation. Add that to the writing and it has given her opportunity to contribute to and support a number of individuals and groups. If you're looking for a speaker, teacher, facilitator, host or writer, she may just be who you need.  

  • Course facilitation (Beginners Creative Writing, Social Media for Beginners)

  • Social Media moderation (Facebook page, Twitter etc)

  • Content creation and editing

  • Public speaking, broadcasting

But don't just take her word for it - here's what others have said

"Annmarie has an enthusiastic and entertaining personality. She is humorous and engaging; whether teaching, writing or talking about writing - it was such an enjoyable experience."

"Annmarie has a special talent not only in writing but in the way she runs a group!!"

Annmarie was a very refreshing voice on our show; funny, insightful and sincere. She's did the Telly review almost from the off on Rojo in The Mornings, and I was always amazed by the unusual stuff she discovered away from the obvious, to recommend to the listeners. She always brought a great sense of fun and I looked forward to chatting with her.

Comments from Beginners Writing Course

​Anmarie Miles has served as a columnist for VOX magazine since the earliest days of our adventure in publishing. From the moment I first read her work I knew I wanted her as part of the team.

Annmarie's unique voice and light touch have made her a huge favourite with readers. She has the rare ability to combine comedy and tragedy, the profound and the pragmatic and to do so concisely. I find Annmarie's work entertaining and enriching by equal measure. I heartily recommend and commend her as a writer and can only hope our "wee" magazine won't be forgotten, once Annmarie realises her full potential as an author, writer and blogger

We love our "feint saint"!!

Annmarie ran a beginner's creative writing course in Lucan Library. She was very easy to work with, at all times pleasant, hard working and organised. She began with a room of strangers and created a supportive and determined group of creative writers - all of whom are keen to continue writing.
Much of this is due to Annmarie's approach and support, a friendly and encouraging manner - but also someone with a firm resolve to keep the group on task - not always an easy combination.
